Code Pink for extreme sea conditions
WILLEMSTAD - The sea is too rough for small crafts these days. The Meteorological Department has issued for the next 24 hours code pink for extreme sea conditions.
This means that high waves can cause damage to small vessels. Sailors with small vessels are requested not to sail under these circumstances.
The Meteorological Department expect waves of 2 to 3 meters.
Meteo: These pictures show the sea conditions in the Riffort area and Pietermaai area. As you can see some of the waves even tumble over the Riffort wall. Our recordings show waves of about 3.5 m with maximum waves of up to 5 m.
